Monzievaird's history dates back to the battle of Monzievaird in 1003.
Loch Monzievaird was the original home of the lairds of Ochtertyre. On the north side of the loch, on what was known as the 'Dry Isle,’ are the remains of an old fortress called Castle Cluggy. The fortress was referred to as 'ancient' in a charter of 1467. It belonged to the Red Comyn, who was killed by Robert the Bruce in the convent of the Minorities at Dumfries. It is thought that Sir William Murray last inhabited the castle in the middle of the 17th century.
The scenery was beautiful enough to inspire Robert Burns on a visit to Ochtertyre in June 1787 to write:
Is there a spot in Scotia fair
So full of beauty rich and rare,
Where Nature with a lavish hand,
Has formed a perfect fairyland?
All gaze with wonder, and admire
Thy beauties, lovely Ochtertyre!
Our self catering chalets are located on a designed landscape, and has been quoted as having 'outstanding architectural value', as making a 'significant contribution to the local scenery', and providing 'the highest values in nature conservation'.
Development began with the building of Ochtertyre House. This Georgian A-listed building overlooking the loch was the Murray family seat between 1784 and 1790. It is now a private house, but in its time it has been a school (Seymour Lodge 1939-1965), a theatre and a restaurant.
The self catering accommodation was developed under separate ownership from Ochtertyre Estate and is contained within an area of approximately 40 acres at the west end of Loch Monzievaird, including the original Gamekeeper's Lodge.
